I'd have to say Bob Marley and the Wailers, Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium 1979. I thought I was just going to see a reggae concert. It was way more than that. I've seen a lot of concerts but I wasn't prepared for a religious experience. I still get chills when I hear (good quality) live show of the Wailers.

Hey Rasterman - I have a copy of that Marley show if you need it. I live in Monterey - you still around Santa Cruz?

Yep, it's the Dead.

I'd have a different answer if it was a studio album choice for the Desert Island (and then i'd have a hell of a struggle between Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited" and Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" but since you asked for a SHOW...my desert island choice is:

Evan's Fieldhouse, DeKalb, Illinois, 10-29-77.

The fluidity of the playing, combined with the sheer rock n roll energy and note-perfect renditions of the songs (my favorite all-time EYES, ST. STEPHEN, JACK STRAW, MIGHT AS WELL and BERTHA all appear in this show), make it a performance that continues to stun, amaze, comfort, and inspire every time I hear it.
